“WWW-Enabled Noise Toy” by Loud Objects

Turbulence Commission: WWW-Enabled Noise Toy by Loud Objects (with funds from the Jerome Foundation):

Loud Objects, NYC-based circuit sorcerers, present a wacky way to learn hardware audio programming. The WWW-Enabled Noise Toy invites anyone with a web browser to write their own audio code, program it remotely onto a Noise Toy, and play it live via webcam. In the spirit of “try it yourself” software demos, the website provides a simple environment for experimenting with low-level microchip-generated audio. Load code from the Loud Objects’ own library of performance algorithms, hone your own noise techniques, and add your work to the online archive to share it with other microchip coders and create an open source noise community.

“FUJI spaces and other places” by Nurit Bar-Shai

Turbulence Commission: FUJI spaces and other places by Nurit Bar-Shai:

Appropriating, processing, and interweaving several existing webcam feeds of Mount Fuji, FUJI is a durational piece for four seasons. FUJI examines the authenticity of networked, spatiotemporal experiences of distant nature, sacred sites, and sacred icons. The overwhelming immediacy and delirious variety of live broadcasts available via the Internet, as well as the current incitement to communicate with distant but real subjects alter our experience of space which is invariably mediated through images. In FUJI, the gap between the real place and its representation no longer exists. FUJI is a voyage across deep time, experienced minute by minute, day by day — a longing for a place that could never be, yet, evidently, always is. Continue reading

Live Stage: Webcam Works [us Aptos, CA]

Webcam Works: Isabelle Jenniches :: October 2 – November 6, 2009 :: Reception and Artist Talk: October 1; 4:30 – 7:00 pm :: Cabrillo Gallery, Room 1002 (below library), Cabrillo College, 6500 Soquel Drive, Aptos, CA.

“Jenniches’ webcam works depend on the availability of generic user-controlled Internet cameras and are constructed over a long period of time — time spent watching the selected scenario, remotely — life-time spent observing the world. Thousands of images are made during a methodological process of deep-looking through this mediated network eye. The extended seeing and repetitive digital operations on the gathered images act to frame a meditative daily routine. Continue reading

Beam Me Up: Jamie O’Shea and Joe Winter

Launching in June 2009 (coincident with the International Year of Astronomy) are new online projects by New York-based artists Jamie O’Shea and Joe Winter and a previously unpublished poem by artist Alec Finlay. As part of the web-based platform Beam Me Up, guest curator Sarah Cook has invited these artists as well as 2 scientists — Guillaume Belanger and Jayanne English — to reflect on the nature of perceiving and representing space and outer space. Two more contributions commissioned by Sarah Cook will follow later in the summer.

Beam Me Up is a global project by, based in Basel, which will continue into 2010 inviting art contributions and essays which seek to interpret concepts of space and cyberspace using both pictures and texts, artistic and philosophical models as well as scientific experience. Continue reading

Susan Collins – Seascape :: April 4 – 14, 2009 :: Opening: April 4, 2:00 – 4:00 pm :: De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex, UK.

Building_Space_with_Words [us Brooklyn, NY]

Building_Space_with_Words by Anne-Laure Fayard and Aileen Wilson :: until March 27, 2009 :: NYU-Poly, Wunsch Building, 311 Bridge Street, Brooklyn, NY + webcam.

Like its co-creator, Anne-Laure Fayard, a social scientist whose background spans the disciplines of philosophy to human-computer interaction, Building_Space_with_Words doesn’t fit into a neat category. The month-long art installation is part experiment, part research artifact, part think-piece. Ms. Fayard, an NYU-Poly assistant professor of management, and co-creator, Aileen Wilson, an associate professor of art and design at Pratt Institute, designed Building_Space_with_Words as a hybrid offline/online environment that asks: Continue reading

WORLDWIDEWEGG by Jaygo Bloom [uk Glasgow]

Jaygo Bloom’s WORLDWIDEWEGG project just launched at the Centre for Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, as part of ALT-W [until September 13, 2008 :: 350 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow].

“Basically its a low budget breakfast bar controlled by the daily habits of a bunch of hens on Gorgie City Farm in Edinburgh. Each time an egg gets laid a signal is sent to the web enabled toaster (courtesy of arduino and my excellent colleague Ian Campbell!) sets the coils in motion and returns the action of egg laying to the gallery goers as hot toast for consumption! Not only that, on the breakfast table is a peck controlled iTunes soundsystem, each peck on the piezo mic’ attached to the chicken feed bowl causes the ‘Cock Rock Disco’ playlist to skip forward a track – perpetual flutterings of chicken inspired songs!

A Day in a Life: Call for Participation

dial.jpgBuilding Bridges is the motto of Munich’s 850th birthday. The project A Day in a Life is going to establish virtual bridges: Munich is linked via livestreaming with some parts of the world. The public place Wittelsbacher Platz is connected via image and sound with – since now – the following cities: Curitiba / Brazil, Skopje / Macedonia, Wellington / New Zealand, London / England, Sendai / Japan.

Artists of diverse backgrounds are involved, working mainly through performative strategies. Sceneries involving the passers-by in every city are created. For example you may see four people of four countries at the same time on four screens, communicating via webcam their wishes oder questions as a sort of statement. Continue reading
